Presidential Address
Dr Chris Pritchard: Focus on the Visual
The role of the visual is central to learning mathematics and to teaching mathematics. Visual imagery, whether an external representation or an internal creation of the brain, often guides our attempts to discover, generalise and prove. After nearly four decades as a mathematics teacher and longer still ‘playing’ with mathematics, I will offer my thoughts on the use of diagrams by both the learner and the teacher and invoke some of my favourite diagrams on the way.

Mathematical (di)visions...and multiplications 
Do you yearn for a Maths keynote where the title is obviously shoehorned in to fit the conference name but where the blurb betrays this tenuous link? If so, you're in for a treat... This keynote will showcase my weird collection of favourite times tables, punctuated by (admittedly unrelated, but equally geeky) Mathematical songs.
